Experiencing Napoli

Walking through the narrow alleys of Naples you meet, sometimes, unexpected, the sunlight which finds space among the tall buildings of the ancient historical center; a huge open-air museum, the largest Unesco heritage in Europe

An unstable balance. An urban patchwork.

Eduardo De Filippo - just "Eduardo", as the Neapolitans call him - was an Italian playwright, actor, director, poet and screenwriter: one of the leading exponents of Italian culture of the XX century, nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1975.

His ironic, wrinkled, suffering face, which symbolizes so much of Napoli, its people and history, has been "drawn" with lighting cables in the sky, just above the entrance in Spaccanapoli.

A delicate and at the same time rough balance between centuries of history and daily living, made of a continuous, close dialogue between impressive masterpieces of architecture and common housing. 
Spontaneous architectures grow everywhere, like nature grows between Angkor rocks and temples.

This unstable equilibrium is perhaps the main talent of this city; its maintainance, the main target. 

A place that forces one to observe.
